NOC serves up guest appreciation festival

Written by 

Nantahala Outdoor Center will host its end-of-season Guest Appreciation Festival Sept. 28-30.

A cornerstone of the annual event is the used gear marketplace, a flea market where enthusiasts can buy and sell gear to one another. Kids can experience the outdoor climbing wall, try out NOC’s new Zip Line Adventure Park, catch a live raptor show, enjoy storytelling, bounce houses, games and face-painting.

Adults can watch a range of free outdoor events, including acrobatic bike trials exhibitions, a head-to-head “boater cross” race, a freestyle kayaking competition, and a slalom kayak race. They are also invited to participate in wilderness survival skills clinics and an on-the-water surf school.

Five bands will play live music on Friday and Saturday at NOC’s riverside café and bar. This year’s lineup includes music by the Freight Hoppers, the Vertigo Jazz Project, the Packway Handle Band, the Archrivals and The Secret B-Sides.

The event is anchored by NOC’s used gear sale where the company liquidates gear and equipment used throughout the summer season. Dozens of manufacturer representatives will be on hand to discuss product features and answer guests’ questions.

And yet, here we were, drinks in hand, smiles plastered across our faces, as family members and dates for the wedding stood in front of us, eager to capture the moment we all were huddled as one.
